Mikenna is originally from Memphis, TN and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Spanish and intensive studies in Arabic at the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig!). During her time there, she studied abroad twice: first for a semester in Sevilla, Spain and later on a community development program in Vietnam. She also participated in several short-term medical brigades with the organization OneWorld Health and spent time visiting with family in Belize (where her dad is from). Inspired by stories from her grandfather to travel as far and as often as she can, Mikenna has been to 15 countries and 23 states so far; her favorite cities so far are San Diego, CA; Sevilla, Spain; and Budapest, Hungary. In her free time, Mikenna enjoys cooking, floral design, playing soccer, spending time outside (whether that’s enjoying lunch on a restaurant patio or going on a hike with friends), and catching up on all her TV shows while cuddling with her dog.
